The brewery didnít take more than 2 persons at a time for a tour, so we were told (at a saturday). Thus we went to the bar/cafe next to the brewery which actually belongs to the brewery, or is owned by the brewery. The gift shop in the brewery is as one would expect: clothes, menorabilia, etc.
The bar/cafe had all the beers from Bitburg either by bottle and/or tap and also the beers from Kostritzer. Found the Pale Ale from Kostritzer which was a serious nice surprise, though I saw Pale Ales are becoming more interesting for the the Bitburg area, luckily.
Service was ok, one grumpy man, and two happy ladies, so they balanced eachother.
Prices were cheap and the place looked very neat. When in the vicinity, worth a visit, but donít detour for this!

On my way to Luxembourg, stopped for a tour at the brewery. Unfortunately today is Monday, so except for reception all is closed. Very friendly lady at reception though.

The tour is pretty cool and the free samples afterwards are definitely cool. Pretty awesome brewery operation. Worth doing again!!! Gift shop is pretty decent as well.

tours are only done on weekdays so you have to plan accordingly. I visited during our beer keg rolling tourny and we had a couple of beers at the breweries attached tap room. Large facility and they really spared no cost to make this place look nice, but in the end the beer is average and itís just a very large production brewery.

I live in the Eifel Region of Germany for almost 5 years, you can not go anywhere and not see Bitburger signs here. The largest privately owned brewery, has numerous tours both in English and German. Although they do not have samples on the establishment they give you free tickets for beer at a local pub. If you are in the area I recommend taking a tour.

For 2.5 years, I lived down the hill from the new brewing complex on the outskirts of Bitburg. They offer tours for groups if you call and arrange it, either in German or English. As part of the tour, you also visit the old brewery in the center of Bitburg (along the old Roman wall area), which is where their expansive gift shop still is. They donít have their own tap room, but that doesnít matter since Bitburger is all over the place in the region.
